Excerpt from The Building News and Engineering Journal, Vol. 92: January to June, 1907 This is the simplest definition. The whole problem may be much more. Take. For example. The work necessary to provide _a municipal tram way. After the station problem comes the line, or electrical conducting system, the keeping alive of which is the first anxiety of the station engineers. A further question is the track for the cars, and finally the motor operated cars themselves. Here are four distinct parts of a whole, of which-the power-station is but one. In the case considered, too, the station may include a. Car depot, for which a special building is required, and in such cases probably very complete accommodation for managing and engineering staff - 'the 'whole a considerable undertaking and: comprising much work for the architect, which, -if as respects the offices is ordinary designing, as regards the dep6t requires some special study.

Excerpt from The Building News and Engineering Journal, Vol. 18: January to June, 1870 Fig. 66 represents a window at Milton Malsor, occupying a square space, but in which the main figure consists of a wheel in which eight spokes diverge from the centre. The spandrels are open and foliated. Square-headed windows are often filled with tracery in the various styles. We can, how ever, only represent one two-light window (see fig. Which is filled with very beautiful tracery of a mixed divergent and convergent character, divided bya vertical line in the middle. In some cases this vertical line is, however, omitted. Flat-headed windows are, however, far more common in the Perpendicular than in any other style. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Building News and Engineering Journal, 1867, Vol. 14 This order was given at Merewell, May 3oth. About a year and a quarter later the king orders Odo, the goldsmith, to displace with out delay the painting which was commenced in the king's great chamber at Westminster, under the great history of the same chamber, with panels containing the species and figures of lions, birds, and other beasts and to paint it of a green colour in the fashion of a cur tain, so that that great history may be pre served unhurt. We may here, I think, learn if we like a very valuable lesson - namely, that the species and figures of lions, birds, and other beasts, placed in juxtaposition with an important figure subject or history, have a decided tendency (at least in the eyes of thirteenth century critics) to hurt the more important work, and that the quiet or repose of a green curtain is needed to preserve what the Americans would call the go of the painting above.
